    Russian keyboards

    I am trying to learn the Russian language, whilst i do enjoy doing so and trying to improve, it can be a burden for me to check anything that is Russian on the internet because if i dont know what it says i have to spell it out with copy and pasted letters. Whilst i invariably do it as i simply like the language and want to learn more, it seems to be impeding my progress.

    I have some questions i hope that could be clarified:

    What is a bi-linguial keyboard? I have never heard of such a thing and it sounds confusing to me.
    Where can i buy keyboards of this nature from? When i search the internet it finds Russian letters to stick on an existing keyboard, which i cant see working out at all.

    Thank you if you can answer, and sorry i dont have a translation into Russian, but at this time i have neither the means or the knowledge to do so

    (sorry if this thread is a duplicate)

    Why? Keyboards for all languages are all the same, they differ only with letters printed on buttons - converting keystrokes into characters is up to operating system, depending on selected ( in the operating system) keyboard layout. Google for /russian keyboard layout [name of your os here]./ .In windows it must be somewhere in control panel->languages.
    You can even draw the Russian letters with permanent (or not permanent) marker or learn to touch-type.
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!

    Huh, learn something new every day. The only thing i can think though is that if i have my keyboard in russian, what about the english things i need my computer for, or am i missing something. Probably the latter. Thanks for your help.

    ****EDIT****

    Thanks you for your help, got it to work now, its alot easier now.

    Re: Russian keyboards

    Hi !
    I live in Brazil and instead of buying a russian keybord for my computer I just bought some stickers at latkey to put on my normal keybord... probably there are other places to buy them, but maybe it'll help you!
